abstract

  • We have studied six cases of choriocarcinomas in the female by conventional cytogenetic analysis and by in situ hybridization using a 12p painting probe, and found evidence for chromosome 12 abnormalities in two of them. Abnormalities of chromosome 12 are a common occurrence in genitourinary tumors of the female, but their significance is not known. We discuss the present findings in relation to those in malignant ovarian germ cell tumors (MOGCTs).
